Apply for SSF Industrial Doctoral Student 2021!

Cooperation between industry and academia is important for the dissemination of knowledge and technology in society. That is why the Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, is investing 30 million SEK in industrial doctoral students. The grant runs during the training period for the doctoral students and must result in a doctoral degree.

The purpose of the program is to contribute to demand-driven research at the highest level in the areas funded by SSF: science, technology and medicine. The research will also promote cross-fertilization between academia and industry and contribute to the education of doctoral students in strategically relevant and competitive areas for Sweden.

– SSF:s industrial doctoral student program is now in its eighth year and meets with great appreciation from both researchers and relevant sectors, says Lars Hultman, CEO of the foundation.

SSF expects to grant 12 projects, with up to 2.5 million SEK each. The initiative applies to people who have not yet been admitted to postgraduate education. During the grant period, the doctoral student must conduct research and be at least 80 percent employed at a company, and have two supervisors, one at the university and one at the company. The money will cover funds for research and postgraduate education. The university must be Swedish.

The last day to apply is 25 May 2021 at 14:00.

The earliest project start is planned for 1 December 2021, and no later than 30 June 2022.
